SHILLONG, Nov 22: Local film makers in the state on Tuesday with an aim to promote the history and culture of the state through the medium of films and television formed the Films Television Producers Guild, Meghalaya (FTPGM). The objective of the Guild is to take measures in censoring the films in India, to register banners, titles, stories etc, to organise semirs, conferences, workshops, film festivals, film marketing, awards etc… Addressing reporters here today, award winning Khasi films director and producer Pradip Kurbam said, “We have come up with this guild in the interest of the film television producers of Meghalaya because there are lots of problems which we are going through right now especially when it comes to matters concerning the censor board.” Informing that many producers in the state are not aware of the procedures in how a film gets censored, he said, “I being in this field for the past many years feel that there was a need to take up this step in guiding them (producers). Through this guild we want to try and create films which can go places and not strict only to this region.”
